Model 408M Micro Double Valve Pump
Pump Manifold with Quick-Connect for Drive Air
and PTFE Sample Tube
The Micro Double Valve Pump (Micro DVP) has a remarkably small and flexible design. As a positive displacement pneumatic pump, it uses coaxial PTFE tubing to give high quality samples. It is small enough to fit in 1/2" (13 mm) tubing and all channels of the Solinst Model 403 CMT Systems, as its diameter is only 3/8" (10 mm). The unique combination of flexibility and size make the pump easy to transport and install in a variety of applications.
The Micro DVP is ideal for low flow sampling and narrow down-hole applications. Flow rates of 20 to 150 ml/min, are possible within the narrow applications. The Micro DVP is durable and easy to operate using the pre-sets and custom sampling capabilities built into the Solinst Model 464 Electronic Control Unit (see Model 464 Data Sheet).
Design & Construction
The Micro DVP uses coaxial PTFE tubing in lengths of 90 ft, 140 ft, and 240 ft. The pump body and filter assembly is 6" long x 3/8" diameter (150 mm x 10 mm). It is constructed of coaxial PTFE tubing with stainless steel fittings and a sintered 316 stainless steel 50 micron filter. Filters are easily cleaned and replaced. A manifold at the top end of the pump has a 3/16" (5 mm) PTFE sample tube and a quick-connect fitting for easy attachment to a Control Unit. A multi-purge sampling head is also available for use with the CMT System.
